More details on the Sony SEL55210 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3

Note: Using this lens on a full-frame camera may result in vignetting -- causing the corners of the image to become darker than the center.
ED Glass: The SEL55210 has two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements which helps suppress chromatic aberration and color bleeding at all focal lengths, providing excellent image quality throughout the zoom range.
Internal Focusing: Internal focusing makes smooth, responsive auto-focusing possible with minimal noise. This makes the lens perfect for video capture.
Optical SteadyShot (OSS): The lens has built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, which helps achieve crisp, stable images and video in low-light or when zooming in on distant subjects.
Lens Hood: The lens comes with the ALC-SH115 lens hood which helps prevent lens flare. When installed, the lens hood adds approximately 2" to the overall length of the lens. The hood can be stored on the lens by installing it backwards.
